The final and biggest event of the year

Perth's premier handmade artisan market returns on Sunday 13 December with a spectacular Christmas celebration for all the family to enjoy!

The Perth Makers Market team and passionate community of local makers, artisans, crafters and creators are excited to present the final event of 2020 at the historic Goolugatup Heathcote in Applecross! Get into the spirit of Christmas and pop down from 9.30am with your family and enjoy a wonderful day of Christmas gift shopping, festive live entertainment, delicious food and fun kids' activities! Entry is FREE!

In this gorgeous riverside heritage location, you are invited to spend a leisurely day browsing the many diverse wares of Perth's up and coming and finest makers, artisans, crafters and creators, including passionate woodworking artists, creative fashion and accessory designers, talented painters and many more.

Everything is proudly handcrafted in WA and with over 200 stallholders onsite, you are sure to find thoughtful Christmas gifts for everyone on your list - plus a few special treats for yourself!

Highlights include one of a kind woodwork, exquisite glassware, fun toys, on-trend clothing, delightful terrariums, amazing sculptures and many more beautiful items which may not be available elsewhere. For a sneak peek at the December stallholders, please see here.

But the bustling marketplace is not the only event highlight! Kids can also take part in fun activities, including the always-popular giant garden games, plus burn some energy at the fantastic pirate ship playground!

Want a break from the kids whilst at the market? Born to Sparkle will be running a Kids Zone area where you can have your children looked after while you wander the market, plus are providing FREE Christmas sparkles and face painting all day!

Plus the Drop & Shop zone will have an obstacle course, a colouring-in station, crafting workshops, games, and lots more for the kids to enjoy.

House of Hobby will be on-site as well, running a pop-up Self-Care and Workshop Hub, where you can create, connect and take a much-needed break.

Buskers will entertain throughout the day too (get ready to sing some carols!) and you can take a tour of the Museum and Gallery. Plus don't miss the Artist Studios Open Day, where you can meet talented local artists and browse and purchase their works.

Feeling hungry? The food stalls will be serving up delicious sweet and savoury treats throughout the morning and afternoon, so create a DIY gourmet picnic and enjoy lunch together under the afternoon sun.

Oh, and there will be a visit from the big man Santa himself!

Perth Makers Market certainly aren't kidding, this will be the biggest and best dedicated handmade artisan market in Perth this festive season. Show Perth's burgeoning arts and crafts community some love and get all your Christmas shopping done in a breeze at Perth Makers Market!

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

There is dedicated event parking next to the market on the Heathcote Lower Lands. This parking is managed by Applecross Rotary as a fundraiser for their non-profit organisation. Parking is by donation.

If you are interested in a beautiful walk along the river to get to the market, you can arrive by Public Transport to the Canning Bridge train station on the Mandurah train line.

Is there an ATM on-site?

With the event of COVID-19, we have decided to move away from using cash at the market. The majority of our stallholders can take card payments.

Am I allowed to bring my dog to the market?

Unfortunately Goolugatup Heathcote is a no-dog area. There is signage to this effect on site.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

If you have any questions about the event please do not hesitate to get in touch with us via e-mail to
